Nucleus Research’s Technology Value Matrix for Business Intelligence and Analytics compares the world’s leading Business Intelligence solutions, assessing product usability and functionality – the two factors that Nucleus Research has found indicate an applications’ ability to deliver initial Return on Investment (ROI) and maximum value over time.
Nucleus Research Value Matrix reports are split into four quadrants: Leaders, Experts, Facilitators and Core Providers.

Yellowfin was positioned as a ‘Leader’ in Nucleus Research’s latest Technology Value Matrix for Business Intelligence and Analytics (First Half 2015) for the second consecutive iteration of the biannual industry study.
“Yellowfin offers administrative, governance, and advanced data analysis and exploration capabilities for enterprise-wide deployment and management.

Within each of its Value Matrix reports, Nucleus Research projects current trends for each vendor.

A word from Yellowfin’s CEO
Yellowfin CEO and Co-Founder, Glen Rabie, said that Yellowfin’s positioning as a Leader in Nucleus Research’s latest Value Matrix for BI was reflective of the vendor’s ability to satisfy broad analytic use cases:
“At Yellowfin, we don’t think it makes sense to have one tool for reporting and another for Data Discovery – that’s why we offer a single-integrated Business Intelligence platform to satisfy a range of reporting and analytics needs.
“Yellowfin enables large, scalable business-user-oriented deployments by delivering a complete platform. As a 100 percent browser-based BI solution, Yellowfin can seamlessly scale to meet growing end-user demand, simultaneously support the governance requirements of IT, and facilitate the data exploration and content creation needs of business analysts.”
About Nucleus Research’s Technology Value Matrix
The Technology Value Matrix is based on the two core criteria of usability and functionality – the two factors that Nucleus Research has found indicate an applications’ ability to deliver initial ROI and maximum value over time.
The ‘usability’ aspect of the matrix is scored on the intuitiveness of the application, availability of role-based interfaces, training requirements, and productivity impact on users. The ‘functionality’ component is based on scores relating to the breadth and depth of functionality in the core application, the availability and ease of integration of add-on functionality that delivers additional benefit, and vendors’ investment in innovative functionality outside the core application that delivers additional benefits.
Nucleus Research developed its Value Matrix series of reports to complement the Gartner Magic Quadrant because “during the past five years in particular, the buying process and mix of vendors have changed. The Value Matrix takes account of this ongoing change and highlights vendors whose solutions remain dynamic.” The Value Matrix differs from Gartner’s Magic Quadrant because it provides a relative ranking against competitors rather than an absolute ranking.
